Homicide suspect turns up in Menlo Park

 

A missing license plate led police to arrest a man in Menlo Park who is suspected of homicide in Merced County.

A Honda Accord driven by 23-year-old Hugo Hernandez, of Modesto, was pulled over at Willow Road and Newbridge Street shortly after 6:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 3, according to Menlo Park police.

After a records check showed he was wanted by the Merced County Sheriff's Department for the potentially drug-related shooting death of a 21-year-old Hilmar man in August, Mr. Hernandez was taken into custody. Police spokesperson Nicole Acker said the suspect's reasons for being in Menlo Park were unknown.
